Respironics SimplyGo Mini Now FAA Approved

Respironics SimplyGo Mini portable concentrator is now FAA approved for all commercial flights to and from the United States! Weighing in at a mere 5 pounds, Respironics has ensured a convenient, safe, and easy way to travel with your oxygen solution.

It’s important that you are able to use your portable oxygen concentrator wherever you go and though a POC is already FAA approved many airlines have additional requirements you will need to meet before your flight. We suggest preparing to fly with your oxygen concentrator 2 weeks before your travel date, this should give you plenty of time to research or call your airline and acquire any required documentation.

Regulations differ from airline to airline and requirements range from a doctor’s note, 48 hours advanced notice, a copy of your prescription, to a physician’s statement confirming your ability to travel. That is why it’s extremely important to carefully read the requirements on the airlines website, or speak to a customer service representative when preparing for your flight to avoid any delay in travel plans.

One of the great things about a FAA approved portable oxygen concentrator, as well as their accessories, is that it won’t be counted as part of your carry on limit. Following a few simple guidelines will make sure you can go wherever you need to go, whenever you need to go, while getting the oxygen therapy you need.

Give us a call today for more information on the SimplyGo Mini or any of our other FAA approved portable oxygen solutions.

    Simply go mini,
    Needs some sort of label on it with model no serial no and a FAA sticker
    I bought this machine and live in the far east I’m having trouble flying with Asian airlines as Simply Go mini is not on there list as FAA accepted,
    Very frustrating.

      Thank you for your comment, Stewart. The SimplyGo Mini has been FAA approved for air travel. See our blog post regarding the official July 2016 FAA launch here: Depending on when you purchased your SimplyGo Mini there should be an FAA Approved icon on the back label of the unit itself. It will be a small circle with the outline of a black plane. Additionally, it is important to note that we do not provide FAA stickers and just because a unit has been approved by the FAA does not mean it has been approved by the individual airlines. Unfortunately, each airline is allowed to make their own oxygen concentrator guidelines.
